Tips Lead to Arrest of “Fugitive of the Week” in Manchester, NH
CONCORD, NH – Last evening, this week’s featured “Fugitive of the Week,” Jesse “Curley Sue” Harris 33, was arrested by the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force in the 100 block of Market Street in Manchester.

Mr. Harris was wanted on an outstanding federal arrest warrant for supervised release violations. Harris was on supervised release after being convicted and sentenced for a 2010 narcotics case out of the U.S. District Court in Concord, NH.

Jesse Harris had been featured as the “Fugitive of the Week” just this past Wednesday. The “Fugitive of the Week” had been aired on WTPL-FM, WMUR-TV, The Union Leader, The Nashua Telegraph, The Patch, Foster’s Daily Democrat, Manchester Information, the Manchester Ink Link and prominently featured on the internet. The “Fugitive of the Week” has been a very successful tool that has resulted in the location and arrest of numerous fugitives since its implementation in 2007. Additionally, the “Fugitive of the Week” is distributed statewide to all law enforcement officers.

We were very fortunate to receive several tips indicating that Harris’ vehicle was in a parking lot off of Middle Street in Manchester, along with additional tips that he was living in a Market Street apartment building with an associate. This arrest was a result these tips combined with the several days of investigation involving several members of the NH Joint Fugitive Task Force, including Hillsborough, Rockingham, Strafford and Belknap County Sheriff’s Offices, Federal Protective Service along with deputy US Marshals. Last evening these efforts paid off, when Harris was located inside an associate’s apartment, where he was arrested without incident.

Mr. Harris was transported to the Merrimack County Jail, where he will be held without bail pending on his outstanding federal arrest warrant. Harris will be scheduled for his initial court appearance later today in U.S. District Court in Concord, NH.

Since the inception of the New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force in 2002, these partnerships have resulted in over 6,806 arrests (Updated as of 5/25/2017). These arrests have ranged in seriousness from murder, assault, unregistered sex offenders, probation and parole violations and numerous other serious offenses. Nationally the United States Marshals Service fugitive programs are carried out with local law enforcement in 94 district offices, 85 local fugitive task forces, 7 regional task forces, as well as a growing network of offices in foreign countries.
